3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
<!-- i -->Tap @ La Guardia<!-- /I --> Pours light amber, effervescent body with a copperish color. Thin foamy white head, most receding. Aroma of grapefruit, mango, pine, pretty much all hoppy flavors. Taste is fruity from the hops, caramel, mango, pine, maybe some toffee. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been drinking entirely beers with continential hops for the past 30 days, but this beer tasted deliciously hopped to me. In some ways this beer tasted like an ale. But this beer was hoppy and refreshing, which is a difficult combination to achieve. Delicious.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a nice amber with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is pleasantly malty, as well as the flavor. The roasted malty flavor is backed by a subtle hoppyness and a roasty finish with a touch of cinnamon. Smooth & balanced, pretty good.

Flour City Brewfest ’06’. Amber body with a frothy white head. Some toasted malt is present in the aroma along with some light hops. Some lighlty sweet malts initially followed by a dry toasty character and a touch of hops in the finish.

Via secret santa Summer 2006. The beer pours to a glowing amber body with a fizzy and quickly disapating white head. The aroma is cookies and toasted wheat bread. The flavor is quite toasty. Bread and sweet rolls. Tart wheat. Perhaps a touch of lemon zest. The palate is very easy to drink. Smooth and carbonated.

Pretty red with good clarity. The head fades quickly. The aroma is toasted bread and perhaps a bit of oxidation. The flavor has virtually no hop credit and only that mild, smooth maltiness.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pretty disappointing. Great name, wonderful copper color got me all set for an intensely flavored beer. This was light in the mouth, lightly hopped, light on the malt, with a slightly nasty finish. Yeah, there were notes of Vienna malt, and notes of toasted malt, but there was just nothing great and enough slightly wrong. Did not finish my draft, and would not order again.
